Coastal Sunrise: Top 3 on 3

Posted: Updated:

Here's a quick look at your Top 3 on 3 stories you'll need to know before heading out this morning.

Today is traditionally one of the busiest travel days of the year, but this year travelers have more than just the crowds to deal with. A Thanksgiving travel nightmare is shaping up as a winter storm continues to bear down on part of the country. In North Carolina, heavy rain, heavy travel volume and airport construction combined to result in near chaos.

Plus, the bidding war for a piece of Savannah history is now down to two. Tuesday was the final day to submit bids to manage the old Bacon Park golf course. On Tuesday morning, businessman and anti-crime advocate O.C. Welch went to City Hall to make his bid. The other bid was made by Michael Collins, who is affiliated with the current management team. City leaders say the current manager is simply at the end of the contract and not choosing to renew. The window for accepting bids is now closed. Next, the city will review each of their proposals and the council will choose a winner in three to four weeks.

Also, Savannah city leaders are now close to finalizing next year's budget. They worked out the budget in their retreat last week and on Tuesday, they held the first of two public hearings. The biggest financial challenge is the city is losing $6 million of revenue from the SPLOST tax this year, after their share was renegotiated with Chatham County leaders.  They have some funds saved up to help recover those losses, but a new solution will be needed for the future. The second public hearing will be in two weeks and a vote will be taken by council on the same day.
